Books before food (and any sort of comfortable life).
Summary: Without the Keys, something terrible will happen. Something that cannot be undone. And with them, I might bring an end to the riddle of the Prophecy and my strange part in it. If Alice and I are on conflicting sides of the Prophecy, the Keys would be dangerous in her hands. Which means I’ll have to find them. And I have to do it before my sister. An ancient prophecy divides two sisters – One good. One evil. Who will prevail? Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents’ deaths, a boy, a book, and a lifetime of secrets.
This was actually a really good book, up until the end, which completely ruined it. It wasn’t bad, but it did just kind of leave off in the middle of the story, nothing completely solved. So if Michelle Zink doesn’t write another one, I’m going to be hella pissed. The book was really cool though because it was set in the late 1800’s, my favorite time period; everyone spoke so awesomely then. Lawlz. But it’s a good read if you don’t mind things just abruptly stopping.
